PEEFACE 



These papers are intended for middle forms, to 
be done either in writing or vivd wee. The questions 
in 1-31 are on accidence only, and follow the usual 
arrangement of Latin grammars; those in 32-42 are for 
the most part taken from or modelled on recent Oxford 
or Cambridge Junior Local papers; 43-49 from the 
same, Senior papers; 50-57 from London matriculation 
examinations. From 58 to the end the questions are 
mainly though not entirely on syntax. At the end of 
each paper are given some sentences for translation into 
Latin, each either illustrating some idiom or containing 
some simple catch. It is hoped that the index will be 
useful in enabling a teacher to put his finger at once 
on the particular sort of question required, without the 
necessity of hunting through the book.
